Now, back to today's post. I realize that wearing even a single item of clothing more than once in a blog post is a major blogger faux pas, but bear with me here as I explain.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post regarding my despise of current party dressing options, opting instead for a certain Free People polka dot dress. This dress is one of my favorites because of its versitility. As you may have gathered by now, in this post I will show you how I have casualized (is that a word?) this very dress. I bet I had you all fooled before thinking it was only for fancy events! Since I realized that one could not appreciate each item of this outfit in a picture when worn all at once, I have broken it down for you:
Free People polka dot dress.
Madewell chambray shirt.
Vintage Levi's denim jacket (stolen from my mom). Gosh I'm so short.
I wore this very outfit to school yesterday. I get a lot of grief from my friends about wearing dresses and such to school, and this outfit garnered a particular amount of attention due to it's lacking of rain gear in the current state of New York's ever fickle weather (we had a slight snow storm yesterday). I decided to go against all my amazing rainy day suggestions and wear whatever I wanted (take that mother nature!)
Instead of the black tights, heels, and the flower crown of my previous outing in this dress, I opted for cute chelsea booties, a striped top to get that mixed prints feel, a chambray shirt, and a vintage jacket that unbeknownst to existed in my mom's closet, having not been worn until yesterday in around 30 years. I can't believe she never mentioned it (and all it's fabulousness) to me!
I fear I may be boring you with my constant presentation of clothing choices from Free People and Madewell. Maybe after I take my first SAT this Saturday (insert irrational sobs here), I can get some much need retail therapy.
So here I am, going against all the rules they tell you when you start a blog about repeating outfits, and I'm not even a month in! But maybe it's okay because I'm only repeating the dress not the outfit?
Which do you like better: dressed up or down? Happy Wednesday!
